Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Donald Washington was arrested Thursday and charged with driving under the influence of drugs, according to a report from NFL.com early Saturday morning.

Washington was arrested driving through central Illinois. According to the Effingham Daily News, he was charged with unlawful possession of 2.5 to 10 grams of cannabis and driving with a suspended license. All of the charges are misdemeanors. From the Effingham Daily News:

Judge Ericka Sanders set bond at $20,000. The relatively high bond was set because authorities believe more charges might be pending. Deters said police found crushed pills during a search after Washington's arrest and believe they may be a controlled substance. The pills were sent away for testing, he said.

Sanders told Washington she would not issue an arrest warrant for any new charges related to the pills because of the high bond.

NFL.com reported that Washington posted the bond almost immediately after his arraignment.

In 12 games with the Chiefs last season, including three starts, the 25-year-old Washington recorded 25 total tackles and forced a fumble.
